    Yea...i wonder if the left would be rustled if Trump employed the artist of this pic. Maybe he should hang it up in his office

    Have you guys mentioned Sean Hannity's semen meltdown? He put up a tweet and a page on his website about sperm hidden in the painting and then deleted it when the internet caleld him a moron.

    If Someone wants to find things to be outraged about they will be successful

    LOL - it showed up in my Google newsfeed (thanks Sherdog ...). So apparently this is something the artist is known for?!? Whoever picked the artist wasn't concerned about avoiding controversy.

    Last time i checked Christianity was not a "white" religion. I think it's from the middle east somewhere near the border of Egypt, which is in Africa.
    I would say that Christianity is much closer to an African religion than a white one.

    It's not true. There wasn't even anything to base that on, especially if you've actually read anything about him or seen one of his interviews.

    Myth: Prisons are full of people in for marijuana possession


    Fact: About 750,000 people are arrested every year for marijuana offenses in the U.S. There's a lot of variation across states in what happens next. Not all arrests lead to prosecutions, and relatively few people prosecuted and convicted of simple possession end up in jail. Most are fined or are placed into community supervision. About 40,000 inmates of state and federal prison have a current conviction involving marijuana, and about half of them are in for marijuana offenses alone; most of these were involved in distribution. Less than one percent are in for possession alone.

    Published in Rolling Stone...that uber right leaning magazine.

    "This painting is about friendship and how music helps us connect with each other. President Trump was thrilled to meet such a sensible artist and couldn't be happier with his own portrait."

    lol the alt Reich can't really be thinking this is racist. It's edgy art and about that religious story.

    All I know is the shit doesn’t look presidential at all. I can’t believe he or Michelle would ok these portraits to be their official depictions

    But the internet has def brought the laughs

    This is an irony they fail to see , I've been pointing out that they are opposite sides of the same coin for years .
